Data Localisation Laws and Policy The EU Data Protection International Transfers Restriction Through a Cloud Computing lens

Author: W Kuan Hon (Trinity 1979)

Publisher: Edward Elgar

Countries are increasingly introducing data localisation laws, threatening digital globalisation and inhibiting cloud computing adoption despite its acknowledged benefits. This multi-disciplinary book analyses the EU restriction (including the Privacy Shield and General Data Protection Regulation) through a cloud computing lens, covering historical objectives and practical problems, showing why the focus should move from physical data location to effective jurisdiction over those controlling access to intelligible data, and control of access to data through security.
